deeply with the courageous proposal made by u.s. president obama for a world free from nuclear weapons and i strongly support this call. but nuclear abolition is not the goal for which the united states should be asked to bear full responsibility. rather it is necessary for all countries to recognize their responsibility and take action. as the only country to have experienced the use of nuclear weapons in war, japan has called for nuclear abolition and has maintained three anti-nuclear principles. no country can be more convincing for a world without nuclear weapons than japan. i am resolutely determined that japan will fulfill its role as a global bridge to contribute to nuclear disarmament and non- proliferation so that we can take an important step toward leaving the children of the future of world free from nuclear weapons. [applause] japan is a maritime country position in the asia-specific region. sent agent times, japan's rich culture was often to exchanges and trade with different cultures. we must never allow the seas surrounding japan to again become the site of battle. we m

. in february of 2007, i left face book to go and work for barack obama's political campaign. back in february 2007, you remember this was not the time probably for from a career or professional perspective to go work for this guy running to be the first african-american president. funny name, middle name was heissan and nobody knew who he was. that's the question i got when i told my peers at face book that this is what i wanted to do. a lot of crossed eyebrows and questions. but it's what i wanted to do for a lot of different reasons. number one, because i generally believed and continue to believe that barack obama and he was unparalleled. honesty, integrity. his ability to truly empathize with every day people was very hard to find anywhere in american politics. but not only was it just a candidate. you also pair that with a campaign that from day one was focused on using every day people, they're interests, energy, enthusiasm and experience to actually strengthen and be the engine behind the campaign. i have never worked deeply in politics but i knew enough to know this isn't the way it u

washington bureau. i guess the big question is why is the obama administration doing this. >> in part they were up against a litigation wall. all these individuals absent one were in the military commission process and the military court had ordered the obama administration to make a choice as to what was going to happen with these individuals. and so they split the difference, five will be headed to new york to face trial for the 9/11 plot, five others will be facing military commission for a variety of other plots, including the master mind of the uss cole attack in 2000. so this was a decision that had to be made, but it also helps the obama administration in trying to depopulate guantanamo and figure out how to deal with the individuals still there. >> but do you peel this is the best way to do it? this has raised quirt a bit of ire especially in the new york city area. they say time heals all wounds. i don't think that applies in this case. you have families here that are outraged. what does the attorney general say to those family members that have to sit lieu what will be years
